Round House Theater presents Columbinus, by United States Theatre Project, conceived and directed by PJ Paparelli. This co-world premiere is produced in cooperation with Perseverance Theatre and United States Theatre Project.
April 20, 1999. A date forever burned into the memory of the nation, as we all stood by in horror and watched body bags carried out of a small high school in Littleton, Colorado. This breakthrough work takes a clear-eyed look at the bitter reality of high-school hierarchies and goes beyond blaming the media and society to dig at the root of the pain: the basic, sometimes desperate need for healthy human interaction. As stark as it is compelling, as dark as it is hopeful, Columbinus will send you home with a new understanding of the pressure, pain and persecution felt so deeply in so many teen lives today.
Contains mature language and graphic description of violence. Round House Theatre recommends that all attending patrons under the age of 18 be accompanied by an adult.
